A personal assistant leads the protagonist of this thriller into a personal hell.

HBO Max has released the trailer for New Line Cinema’s KIMI, which premieres exclusively on the streamer February 10. Directed by Steven Soderbergh (UNSANE) from a screenplay by David Koepp (STIR OF ECHOES, JURASSIC PARK), it stars Zoë Kravitz, Byron Bowers, Jaime Camil, Erika Christensen, Derek DelGaudio, Robin Givens, Charles Halford, Devin Ratray, Jacob Vargas and Rita Wilson. Kravitz plays Angela, an agoraphobic tech worker who picks up what she believes is evidence of a violent crime while reviewing a data stream. Her own life becomes imperiled when she attempts to report it to the authorities, as her personal digital assistant “Kimi” seems to be recording every move she makes.
